In this film, Dr. Monica Myklebust, an Integrative Medicine Specialist, brings many healing systems together to suggest various options for patients.
Integrative Medicine is at the cutting edge of modern healthcare and is becoming popular with patients, who find encouragement in taking charge of their health while regaining hope, increasing energy and building stamina.The practice combines conventional medicine with alternative medicine (CAM) and involves caring for the whole person – mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally, as it utilizes a variety of therapeutic approaches. Dr. Myklebust encourages viewers to partake in meditation and a methodical process of healing involving each area of their lives. This film aims to help patients benefit from this practice to achieve greater health, but also relieve healthcare providers, who may suffer from a version of compassion fatigue. While unique in its approach, the message of taking charge of our own health is valuable, and anyone interested in a holistic approach to improving his or her health and well-being may find benefit from the information provided. We approve this film for viewers of all ages, with parents being advised: While the film does focus on spirituality, it offers little reference to God’s spirit and hand in healing.
